FENTON, Missouri — A fifth municipality in St. Louis County is voicing its formal opposition to a proposed county merger with the city of St. Louis.

Elected leaders in Fenton last week voted to oppose the merger, which supporters say would save money and end duplication of services in the city and county. Ellisville, Ballwin, Green Park and Valley Park have also gone on record opposing the move.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (bit.ly/TEEuSh ) reports that the Fenton resolution touts the city's strong financial condition and high level of service to residents. Fenton has been a part of St. Louis County for more than 175 years.
